AVID DigitalXP closes the distance between learning and doing. Engage with colleagues to learn, practice, apply, and reflect. Enjoy vast resources and a virtual Community of Practice.
AVID’s professional learning experience includes interactive online learning and networking that will require you to have access to different technology tools. Your participation is contingent on access to AVID technology platforms and tools. Please review the checklist below to make sure you have everything you need before you start your learning journey.
Before Day 1
- Note your scheduled dates and times.
Check your event dates and the daily schedule, so you know when your event is taking place and in what time zone.
- Ensure you are registered for the correct Community of Practice.
Refer to the Professional Learning Guide for all Community of Practice titles and descriptions.
- Complete your required eLearning Pre-Work.
As part of your AVID Professional Learning experience, all registrants are required to complete the eLearning Pre-Work prior to attending AVID DigitalXP. Watch this video on how to access your Pre-Work. To ensure a seamless experience, follow the recommendations on this technology checklist.
- Use your own digital device for the training.
All professional learning requires participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the Internet. Participants must use an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones when attending the Community of Practice. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up-to-date. It is highly recommended that participants have both browsers on their device prior to attending the training. Acceptable devices include laptops, Chromebooks, Surface devices, and iPad Pros. Unacceptable devices include iPads, iPad minis, Kindle or Galaxy tablets, and smartphones. For an optimal experience for you and others in your AVID DigitalXP Community of Practice, it is highly recommended that you work in a quiet area away from distractions and background noise.
- Request Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) support, if needed.
If you require special devices or need assistance per ADA guidelines, please submit your request at least 5 days before the training starts.
